I'm not sure what it is - but lately I've been feeling crafty -
in a diy-make-cute-things sort of way that is, nothing evil lurking here...
this was my favorite find at the fair a couple of weekends ago.
Greg and I like just about anything black lab - and this one was impossible to pass up.
On a whole different plane of craftiness,
I found these felted wool dryer balls on Pinterest and for whatever reason
just needed to make them. They're great - everything you could hope for and more.
(from dryer balls, anyway)
I add a few drops of lavender essential oil and my laundry has never smelled more fresh.
Also from Pinterest, I made one of these diy reed diffusers.
I used a blend of lavender and cedar, which is a soft restful scent.
Truthfully - I haven't noticed any scent diffusing from this thing,
but I did get a good night's sleep - so who knows?
For even more crafty fun, I whipped up a batch of lip balm.
There are lots of recipes out there, but I made up my own.
Yeah, this stuff should be called
"Lip conditioning-moisturizing-kick-ass-best-ever-turn-back-the-clock balm"
I'll probably tweek the recipe anyway, just for fun.
And finally - I made my third batch of soap this week.
I have the little bars curing on the kitchen table - all lined up like tiny little soldiers.
Greg gazes upon them in a perplexed sort of way -
"You know, I think we have enough soap for a year, here"
Yes, he's probably right...
and yet - I really don't think I can stop.
Soooo - family members you should probably beware,
Christmas - it is a-comin'
But hey, maybe I'll also throw in some of my
lip conditioning-moisturizing-kick-ass-best-ever-turn-back-the-clock balm.
How about you - up to anything crafty lately?
Have a great weekend!
